One of many small cantinas/osterias in Frascati. This one has a better-than-average appetizer plate, with bread, salami, prosciutto, cheese, olives, and delicious porchetta. Enough for a light dinner, for about 10 Euros. Other food is apparently available as well. Closed Monday year-round, and closed Tuesday in Winter.
